Yankees sign catcher Bobby Wilson

10 Comments

Thankfully, we finally have some big news today.

Bobby Wilson, who’s spent the past few seasons as a backup catcher for the Angels, has signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees.

New York is searching for catching help following the departure of Russell Martin, but Wilson merely adds to their collection of backup-caliber backstops and has little chance for significant playing time even if he cracks the roster.

Through age 29 he’s hit .208 with a .593 OPS in 191 games as a big leaguer.
